Sculpture Developement

I am enjoying continuing with my sculpture I started at the workshop in Halifax. It is something that is completely new to me so is harder for me to take completely control of.
This is where I have got so far.
I am really Enjoying how slow it is 🙂

Hyacinth Relief

We had friends round the other day and I was bought a lovely bunch of spring flowers which included some beautiful hyacinths. I was inspired to use one for a relief.

When pressing this into the clay I wasn’t sure how it was going to come out.But I went for it anyway, the challenge is the driving force for me.Peeling back the clay is very satisfying. This is how it turned out.It still needs a bit of cleaning up but I’m very pleased! 🙂

 

Sculpture Workshop

I had a fantastic day on a sculpture workshop at the Sainsbury Centre in Norwich yesterday with artist Desmond Brett. I learnt a variety of techniques that are accessible to me in my own art practice.Negative and positive casting, which included how to correctly mix the plaster. And some sculpture with found objects, Modroc and plaster. this was not using a preconceived idea we were to be led by the materials available.This was as far as I got in the time provided. I am very pleased with it.

I also did some plastering of myself! I had such a good day and learned loads 🙂

Playing With Time

The next painting I would like to show you is ‘Playing with time’ – acrylic and collage on board. This one took quite a while. Some times as an artist you can get to a point where a piece of art looks finished but you know it’s not complete. It was some time before I was able to put the final touches to this but I am pleased with the result of my patience 🙂 

‘Harp’ – Acrylic and collage on board

I know I keep saying it, but this is one of my favourites!

‘Harp’ – Acrylic and collage on board, was painted specifically for this vintage frame. I like to give myself a challenge! 🙂

Workshop for Relaxation and Mindfulness

It was my first workshop today and it went very well. The purpose purely to switch off from our every day responsibilities and enjoy a time to paint! I’m looking forward to the next one which is on 7th October. 🙂
